Love Crash

Artist Feature of Alena Schmick

During shows of strength bodies merge into sculptures. Reddened skin andtense muscles, grasps and embraces, power and intimacy.Are we seeing lovers or fighters? A couple or opponents?My work Love Crash is a playful observation of the boundlessintensity of the human body. Through the use of close cropping, Ifocus on the materiality of the skin. At the same time, the strengthof the subjects seems to break open the picture frame.
